Time is of the essense

If you are in service industry then there's no other option for you but to respond on time. I know I would not sound wise when I say that. But such small and petty things are tossed big time in some organizations. It is really difficult for me to fathom 'why people do that?'

If you are not equipped with information as to what needs to be responded to client or any other stakeholder then I can probably understand. However, when you have everything that is required to notify the other person and yet you don't do that then it raises a question on your ability to work in professional setup and sensitivity towards other people who are waiting for your response.

I remember one such incidence when one of the department was expected to respond to some client query. The function got this update on day 0. The news got circulated to concerned people internally on day 1. The required information and the solution was provided back to the team with all other required explanation on same day i.e. day 1. Nothing happened on day 2. The person who should have sent the information on day 1 offloaded the responsibility of response to somebody else on day 3. And I really don't know when client actually received the information.

Such things would pose a great difficult for the growth of the organization. And organization that will work on such small and little human things will succeed for sure.

Honeymoon - Part 1

The first thing that any couple does immediately after their marriage is go for a 'honeymoon'. It is almost 6 months since I am carrying tag of 'husband' but unfortunately could not go out with my wife. I didn't have enough leaves to go for honeymoon after my wedding. So we had decided then that we will have it in parts like Harry Potter movies. So this weekend we went for our first part of Honeymoon.
Saturday morning we left at around 9:00 AM for The Lake Weekend resort. This is the parking area of my building.


The resort is near Varasgaon dam. The route is Sinhagad road - Khadakwasala dam - Panshet - Varasgaon boat club. The picture taken while running besides Khadakwasla dam.


My wife, Meet, trying catch herself in portrait while I was driving my Pulsar 150 towards resort. She is wearing cap that my MBA college gave me when I went there to meet my juniors last year. 

It is a perfect ride on weekend if one loves beautiful scenery and enjoys cool breeze.

Bride-Groom Selection Spreadsheet

Soon after entering in your mid 20's you will hear a word 'proposal' more often from your parents. In most part of the India the timing for bride/groom searching is decided by the parents for two reasons
Arranged marriages are still very popular hereAs you young boy or girl you will always feel that you too young to get married 
Many a times a final selection will be done based on a gut feeling of your parents and relatives. To base your decision on facts and figures I have created following spreadsheet. I personally think the selection that is going to impact your whole life should be made logically. 
In criteria or attribute column you can add up to 10 things and you can assign weighing factor to it in the adjacent column. Then you should go on replacing Name 1 to 4 with name of girls or boys your are considering as your would be. Now simply give marks to each girl and boy against each factor. The one you have with highest score should be the winner.

Corporate e-Newsletter Initiative – How to go about it?

If you are thinking of starting up a e-newsletter activity at corporate level then below are few tips that might help you in the course. I have divided a newsletter activity in three phases viz. planning, construction and distribution.

Planning phase

1. Attention grabbing name

The name of the newsletter should grab attention of the audience. If your brand is highly recognizable in your business community then only use that name. If that is not the case then use any other name that will represent the aim of your newsletter. For example, if you are starting a newsletter for cloud services then have the name something as ‘Envisioning the Cloud’.

2. Decide your target audience

It is not always possible to have different newsletters for different segments of your market due to budget and resource constraints. In that case you will have to choose your first market segment that you will serve as a pilot campaign. Based on its success you can go on adding segments in current newsletter or sta…
